I’m kind of lost right now. A little help will b highly apprecieated

For AR movie.genre is an object of type Genre. Also on creation it
expects move.genre to be an Object of the type Genre e.g. your Model.
so the make this work quickly:

@movie = Movie.new(params[:movie])
@movie.genre = Genre.find :condition => { :id =>
params[:genre_id] }, :limit => 1

or
